The woman had to wash her head in the parlour, the doctor shared the case and warned


It is very common to get hair washed in a parlour/salon before a hair cut or spa. It is such a relaxing experience that even the body feels refreshed. However, a slight mistake while washing the head while massaging can cause a stroke, which happened recently in the case of a 50-year-old woman. Dr. Sudhir Kumar of Apollo Hospital, Hyderabad shared information about this on his Twitter account and also warned people.

Doctor shared the case

The doctor shared in his Twitter thread ‘Recently a 50-year-old woman came to me who was suffering from dizziness, nausea and vomiting. All this started happening after getting her hair washed in the beauty parlour. He was initially taken to a gastroenterologist, who treated him symptomatically. However, this did not improve the condition and he started having problems with stumbling while walking. After this he was sent to me.

Hair wash became a problem in the parlor

When the woman got an MRI done, an infarct/stroke was found in a part of the brain. This happens when for some reason the blood supply is interrupted and the tissue becomes dead. The doctor diagnosed beauty parlor stroke syndrome, the main reason for which was the woman bending backwards towards the wash-basin and pressure on the vein. This caused a stroke by obstructing the blood flow. Along with this, the woman also had a problem of BP, which made the situation more serious.

they are at higher risk

According to the doctor, stroke affecting the vertebro-basilar artery territory can happen if hair wash is done in a beauty parlour. Its danger is especially in those women who already have blockage in their arteries or they have vertebral hypoplasia. If its diagnosis and treatment is started on time, then any kind of disability can be avoided.

what to do to avoid

The doctor also told the way to prevent it in his post. He wrote that during hair wash, your neck should not be tilted back too much. Even if you have to tilt, keep in mind that it should not be more than 20 degrees. To prevent the neck from bending too much, support of a thick towel can be given below.
